    Harrison Barnes needs to be

    a Cyclone at this point. Not because he is great but he has now teased us to much. He has become the hot chick at the bar that talks to you all night. You buy here drinks. She comes over for "coffee" afterwords. She makes out with you. You do everything. Then she ups and says. I don't want to go there with you. In short. She gives you the Blue ones (AG reference). Guys know what that means. She does not have to seal the deal that night. At some point though I want the payoff.

    Now Harrison is practicing in the off season with team. He is attending games sitting with hurt and or suspended players. He plays for the hometown team. I don't mind him waiting. He just needs to seal the deal at some point.

    I want him on this team badly.

    Re: Harrison Barnes needs to be

    I thought it was funny to see him sitting there. I hope he is buying his own ticket and it is not given to him.

    Re: Harrison Barnes needs to be

    couldn't he get tickets from the players? they each get 3 or 4 I know and it would be a good way to make sure he is at the games

    Would that be legal?

    Re: Harrison Barnes needs to be

    If a player had a friend that happened to be a great basketball player and they gave them a ticket... I'm not sure how you could make that kind of thing illegal.

    Then again, we are talking about the NCAA.

    Re: Harrison Barnes needs to be

    Why? I thought recruits could get tickets to any game for free. I hope he gets everything for free and continues to have the red carpet rolled out for him.

    Re: Harrison Barnes needs to be

    any HS athlete that is being recruited can have tickets given to them if they are on an unofficial visit.

    Even HS football recruits can get free tix to BB games.

    Re: Harrison Barnes needs to be

    I was just not sure if there was a limit to how often he can do that.

    I'm pretty sure that as long as transportation, food, etc. are not paid for (Which is pretty easy, since he not only lives in town, but his mom works for the university), he can get as many tix as the Athletic Dept. is willing to give him.

    I hope he got this one and every ticket hereafter for free. I want him to see this team improve, see his potential role, and commit.

    Re: Harrison Barnes needs to be

    I think there's another issue to consider with Barnes....If he were to committ, and we had Barnes and Dykstra on board, it would help recruiting Evan Anderson from Eau Claire, WI bigtime....he would have to see the talent and potential of the class he would be a part of......that would be a top 5 recruiting class in the nation.....mark those words....3 top 30 kids....The top guys are interested in the program, exposure, growth potential (PT & Coaching) and maybe as important as anything the style of game and his teammates. This obviously is strongpoint for us with Barnes, and we get barnes i feel extremely good about getting Anderson or another quality big man as a part of this class.....

    i agree, he really needs to commit, he seems to like mcdermott alot and enjoys playing with the players and really likes the university, just hopefully we stay his favorite and committs hopefully sooner than later but he seems like hes gonna wait a while

    Wait a second... there were a lot of people in Hilton last night who were being PAID to attend the game- John Walters, other reporters, officials, even McDermott. Now even if Harrison Barnes wasn't being paid to attend the game, but he was attending the same game that others were being paid for, isn't that just as bad? I hope the NCAA doesn't find out about this...
